The Sherman Filterbank 2 is a musical instrument in clear differentiation from the simple sound shaping of an "ordinary" filter. With two very complex filters that can be used in parallel or serial mode, LFO, envelopes, rich distortion and various modular linking options, Filterbank 2 can generate a rich beat from the simple noise of a loose cable. The device is the right answer for unlimited sound shaping applications once you understand it. In an unusual housing and with a remarkably clear manual, the Filterbank 2 is unexpectedly functional and also extremely beautiful.
The compact version is much smaller and has all the connections on the top.
